We were here 3 years ago and ate at Casianos twice that trip. We were looking forward to eating there again this trip- and seeing their new location. We were disappointed with our experience. We ordered the 3 course meal with wine pairings.
Food: We knew from past experience that would be plenty of food. It was too much food- mostly because everything came swimming in a gelatinous sauce, or perched upon a rich purée The "main course" was a tough piece of steak. It did not appear to be overcooked - so the toughness had to be poor quality.
Wine: I would not recommend doing this. The courses were tough to pair with a single wine- because the first two courses actually had 3 separate items with a range of flavors. you might as well just order a bottle of something you enjoy. Anyway- I was really irritated when the Cabernet they paired with the steak was Sutter Home. That is often served on airplanes in coach- and they sell it at Walgreens at home. I was not familiar with the other wines they served - but I was not enthused by any of them.
Cost: the food was $60 pp- which was reasonable IF the food was like it was last time. The wine pairing is also $60 per person which is a complete and total ripoff. I know wine is expensive here - but that is a joke. We were charged for two big bottles of water- $5 each. I didn't order water- my husband did- and he probably drank half a bottle. We should have complained but I was already getting a stomach ache and we just wanted to go.
Service: was very attentive.
When we got home last night my husband was ill. I am very sad that we had this experience- we were really looking forward to the evening.
